    In my post yesterday about freshly-announced benefits from tax reform -- here's another bummer for Pelosi and friends -- I warned that in spite of Americans' positivity on the economy and growing support for the GOP-passed law, outsized Democratic enthusiasm threatens to make a 'blue wave' inevitable.  I stand by that analysis, but figured I'd keep you posted on data points and trends that push back against the 'doomed GOP' narrative.  One was the Monmouth poll we covered last week.  The latest national survey from Politico is another.  The president's approval rating is up to a respectable level, Republicans have...

    Several recently released polls show a resurgence of Republican popularity among voters, as measured by President Trumpís approval ratings and the generic Congressional ballot. The Real Clear Politics Average of Polls, for instance, currently shows the generic Congressional ballot advantage for Democrats has dipped to 6.2 percent, the lowest it has been since May 30 of last year, and down seven points from the 13-point advantage they had as recently as a month and a half ago. President Trumpís job approval rating has increased to 42.3 percent in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls, his highest since May 13...

    Nearly half of those who watched President Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday reacted "very" positively to the speech, according to a snap CNN/SSRS poll.

Only 22 percent said they had a "somewhat positive" reaction to the speech, while 29 percent reacted negatively. The results of that poll came less than two hours after Trump finished delivering his speech, in which he touted the tax...

The same poll from December found Trumpís job approval at 32 percent, against 56 percent who said they disapproved.
  • GOP bouncing back in 2018 polls after tax cuts

    Axios ^ | January 21, 2018
    Congressional Republicans have seen a bounce in generic polling against Democrats after passing tax cuts last month. A new CNN poll tightened the margin to 5 points ó with Democrats at 49% and Republicans at 44%. The same poll showed Democrats leading by 18 points last month. Why it matters: The GOP is banking its 2018 hopes on the tax law, and while it's far from universally popular it is making a difference. A 5-point deficit is still bad, though at least the sky isn't falling. One thing that should be worrying: that CNN poll has those excited about turning...

  • President Trumpís Poll Numbers Boom with the Economy

    01/05/2018 7:35:01 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 11 replies
    President Trumpís historical successes in the first year of his presidency, word and the results are getting through to the only people that matter, voters. And the latest job approval numbers for the president reflect this. Even the Gallup poll, which has been an outlier with its bad news, has Trump at 40 percent approve (55 percent disapprove) after weeks in the mid-thirties. One of the reasons Gallup is an outlier is that it polls all U.S. adults, rather than screen for registered or likely voters. For a time, Trumpís disapproval in this poll was over 60 percent. The Rasmussen...

    Steve Bannon has unified the Republican Party ó against Steve Bannon. And President Donald Trump stands to benefit most from his former chief strategist's comeuppance. Without Bannon barking in his ear ó and nipping at the heels of Republican senators ó it will be easier for Trump to deliver on the remainder of a legislative agenda that threatens to strain his base over issues such as federal spending, government wiretaps and immigration. Similarly, a weakened Bannon figures to have less firepower to challenge sitting Republican senators ó and imperil Trump's GOP majority ó in this year's midterm elections.

    NEW YORK -- Retailers are seeing plenty of green this holiday season. And it's not over yet. Records are falling as sales add up. "This is literally the best season since before the recession," business owner Craig Johnson said. Johnson's company, Customer Growth Partners, analyzes all things retail. He credits low unemployment and a booming stock market for this humbug-free holiday season. "The single biggest drive of retail sales is growth in real disposable income," he said. "And when real income goes up, people have money in their pocket and they're able to spend it."

    Investment manager and GOP megadonor Foster Friess told CNBC's Squawk Box on Friday that President Trump's decision to blame both white nationalist groups and their counter-protesters for last weekend's violence in Charlottesville was correct and the resulting uproar was "politically inspired." The key quote: "I love Donald Trump. He's become a victim. And he's being bullied. And that's why Americans are flocking to him, because they hate [seeing] peopleÖbullied." Friess' influence: A supporter of conservative Christian political causes, he helped finance Rick Santorum's presidential run in 2012. He's been active in media as well, investing millions into The Daily Caller.

    As tensions rise and explosive language flies between Trump and North Korea, the president has regained standing in his national approval rating. According to the latest Rasmussen survey, 45 percent of Americans approve of President Trump -- the highest his rating has been in the same poll since July 12. His approval rating exactly one week ago stood at a staggeringly low 39 percent. Where 62 percent of Americans say North Korea poses a "very serious threat" to the U.S., President Trump's blunt rhetoric -- including phrases like "locked and loaded" and "fire and fury" -- the commander in chief's...
